HBO's Westworld and NBC's Saturday Night Live topped the list of contenders with 22 nominations apiece.

Although Veep received two supporting actor in a comedy nominations, and many nominations in other categories, Timothy Simons was not nominated for his portrayal of Jonah Ryan. The nominees are: "The Amazing Race"; "American Ninja Warrior"; "Project Runway"; "RuPaul's Drag Race"; "Top Chef"; "The Voice".

- "Stranger Things." Yes, this beloved series, full of supernatural creeps, did win a Golden Globe award earlier this year, so maybe we shouldn't be all that surprised. But it cleaned up for its guest actors, with nods going to Becky Ann Baker, Riz Ahmed and Matthew Rhys, with Ahmed and Rhys nominated in drama categories as well, for "The Night Of" and "The Americans", respectively. NBC's 60 nominations was third followed by FX Networks' 54 nods.

The eligibility period for the awards is between June 1 and May 30 each year.

The Americans: After breaking into the major categories a year ago, the FX drama retained acting slots for stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys, but lost its drama series spot. "The Emmy Awards competition experienced a 15 percent increase in submissions for this year's initial nomination round of online voting".

Among late-night talk hosts, Jimmy Kimmel, John Oliver, James Corden and Bill Maher won repeat nominations, joined by newcomers Samantha Bee, for her TBS series Full Frontal, and Stephen Colbert, whose CBS Late Show was snubbed past year.

This year's outstanding drama series category is comprised of no less than five new shows: Stranger Things, The Crown, Westworld, The Handmaid's Tale and This Is Us.

HBO's lead is even more remarkable this year because its flagship series, "Game of Thrones", which won for best drama the last two years, didn't make the cut this time around because of its later start date.

Shows including "Atlanta", "Black-ish", "Master of None", "Modern Family", "Silicon Valley", "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" and "Veep" are contending in the comedy category. Jessica Lange, who portrayed Crawford, and Susan Sarandon, who played Davis, were each nominated for best actress in a limited series or movie.

The 2017 Emmys will take place on September 17, 2017.

Comedy also saw its share of newcomers, including FX's "Atlanta".
